Outstanding support: When the weather forecast showed high winds, they called me 24 hours ahead to let me know they couldn’t launch at the scheduled time. They tentatively rescheduled me for the best forecast while I was still in Florida. The scheduler and captain both contacted me several times each day with updates on the forecast, and double checking they had my correct info for how long I’d be in Florida, including one last check-in before I started the hour drive from Orlando to their launch.

Captain Morgan was great, selecting fishing spots, and conversations appropriate for the size and age of those aboard.

This was my 8th guided fishing trip (not including charters). I’ve been blessed that most guides have been decent to great, but usually booking and communication are less than professional. Fired Up and Captain Morgan were exceptional with it all. They will be my first option on my next trip to Florida.

Thank you Ryan for such a detailed wonderful review. Debra is "the communicator" LOL it has been pretty tough on her lately with mother nature and she does her very best to keep everyone abreast so we have no last minute notices. We are so happy that you had a wonder experience with us. That shows us that we are doing something right. Capt. Morgan is great too and so happy that he is on our team here at Fired Up. Well, it looks like you have quite a lot of experience to make such a comparison. We appreciate you and the time you spent leaving us a five star review. Till the next time for another great adventure with us. Thank you, Capt. Chris

We had an awesome fishing trip with Captain Joe at Fired Up Charters. While most of the other Charters went to the reef and dealt with rougher seas, high winds, storms, and poor fishing - Capt'n Joe took us to a spot where we had a slammer king fish on the line about 30 seconds after casting the first bait into the water. We ended up catching enough to fill the fish box with Large Kings, Cudas, and a few sharks. The fishing grounds weren't the best, with a LOT of scattered weeds, which made Joe's job even more difficult. He was VERY good with the group we had and spent extra time with the younger kids explaining to them how to reel the fish in. We were on fish most of the day until the weeds showed up and made keeping the baits clean nearly impossible.

Booking with the Charter Company was easy and painless. Deb Cameron is very professional, responsive, and extremely helpful when we had to reschedule a few times due to weather issues and other conflicts with our groups schedules. She was always pleasant and willing to do whatever she could do to make sure that we would have an excellent fishing experience.

I would highly recommend booking your next fishing trip with Fired Up Charters!!!

WOW !! Thank you for such a detailed review. We really appreciate you. Capt. Joe is definitely a crusher as we call him. He does his thing, leaves early and fills the box. He is awesome with the kiddos too that is for sure. He loves teaching them and seeing the smiles on their faces. He has a passion for what he does. I'm glad that you booked with Debra too. She too has been an integral part of Fired Up. It usually starts with her and ends with her following up with everyone and their experience. Mother Nature has definitely been a PITA but we are all about safety first and then comes the fun. Debra is not just about selling a trip she is about educating them on what is biting and keeping up with the captains and the weather to make it a safe and memorable trip. We look forward to hearing from you again for another great trip. Together as a team we work well to make it all happen. Thank you, Capt. Chris

Debra, from “Fired Up Fishing Charters”, was exceptionally helpful and accommodating. The entire booking process was handled in a professional and consumer friendly manner.
I might add that although Debra knew of my grandson’s high expectation of going out on a shark fishing charter, she thoughtfully put our safety and well being ahead of any economic gain, and regretfully canceled our trip because of rough seas. something not many enterprises would do.
I would highly recommend this charter service for not only their proven history of successful fishing but also for their regard for their customer’s safety

WOW !! Thank you very much for giving Debra such a wonderful compliment. One thing we can't control is Mother Nature and to us safety is first. We want all our customers to have the best experience possible and that starts with honesty. Debra mentioned to me how bad she felt about having to cancel your trip and how you were looking forward to spending time with your grandson. I heard she also sent your grandson a tee shirt and I hope he enjoys it and gets to wear it next time. Thank you for your kind words and I'm sure that you made Debra's day with such a heartfelt review. We look forward to hearing from you again. Thank you, Capt. Chris

Captain Tyler put us on the fish. Plain and simple.

It was tough early in the morning and it was where almost everyone was trying. He made a bold move to go further south and we eventually got to a fire spot.

Did a full day and ended up limited on kingfish, with three 40+ pounders, a couple keeper cobia (and a couple an inch under limit), a Spanish, a Bonita, a remora and a shark. Between the kingfish and the cobia, we probably had 200 pounds of fish. Couldn’t even keep it all - just simply too much to not go to waste.

The weather was questionable but I had my dad in from out of town and this was our only available time, so capt tyler met us at the dock and agreed to check out the conditions with us before we made a call. We got out there and it wasn’t too bad so we went with it. Ended up being an absolutely beautiful day when all other chargers cancelled the night before.

Oh, Tyler also put a full live well of pogies on board with a single cast net toss. Those pogies are the only reason we got the big kings and cobia.

I won’t go with anyone else as long as I live in central Florida.

Wow is right !!! Mother Nature.......watching her the whole week wondering if the trip was going to go out being questionable. So, you go and check it out and it turns out to be one amazing, slam dunk, rod bending day. You had to be sore the next day LOL. There is no doubt that Capt. Tyler is awesome in more ways than one. You caught so much fish that day. We are so happy that you are one of our repeat customers that are faithful. We appreciate you and the time it took to write such a great review. Happy New Years to you and your family happy new years🎇🎇🎇🎇🎇 Thank you, Capt. Chris

It was an amazing time! The captain kept the kids fishing for smaller bait as we waited for the sharks to bite,( while the adults relaxed). The captain was very nice and well informed. There were 5 of us and we all caught shark and many other smaller fish/ shark, and he was able to tell us what was being caught. I will say if you plan on bringing anything home bring bags and a cooler, if you are traveling on a flight seek out where to get dry ice. This adventure was amazing for us all and I would highly recommend using them for a fishing charter! Their prices were the best of all the places we called. When we plan our next trip we will definitely book them again! Thanks for the great experience!!

WOW !!🎣💜✨🐟💥 Thank you so very much for such a great review. We definitely need to add that it's appreciated if everyone could bring some gallon plastic zip lock bags to put their fresh fish filets in. We do have them available in the marina store too. All of our captains are super great and they make up our team here at Firedup Charters. I will do some research on the dry ice and see what our options are. Thank you for everything and we will look forward to seeing you all again. Thank you, Capt. Chris

My son and husband had an outstanding experience with Captain Joe! When we called in the morning, they told us they'd check with the captains to see if they had room on any boats going out that day. They called us back within 5 minutes, with a scheduled outing.

They were able to catch MANY sharks. Joe helped whenever necessary, but he also allowed the teens on our boat to feel successful with their skills.

The company's communication was excellent, and we highly recommend booking a fishing trip with Fired Up Fishing.

I asked my son what he wanted to do on our family trip to Orlando. He said deep sea fish. He researched different charters and settled on Fired Up. The charter fee seems to be pretty standard across the different outfits, so I booked them for a full day for two of us. We were paired with Captain Joe. After searching for live bait, we hit Joe’s “honey hole” and had four king mackrel in the boat within an hour. Then word got out to the other charters of our success and the hole dried up. We moved to another location and landed another mackrel, a barracuda and two small sharks. With the hurricane churning in the south Joe was upfront and said we could stay out here longer, but I doubt we’ll catch anything. Fish can sense the storm and seemed to have gone into hiding. We tried for another 45 minutes without a strike, so we called it good for the day. Ended up with a 3/4 day instead of a full day. I appreciate Joe being upfront with us and saving a little money. It was a great experience. My son said it was the highlight of the trip.

Honesty is what we are all about. Safety is #1 for us and then it is fun. We are always upfront and honest with our customers. We don't like to set up anyone for disappointment. I know my secretary Debra often books for a full/bottom trip but always tells the customers when you get to the boat in the morning to talk with the captain and see where the bite is. The Capt. might tell you the current is too strong for a bite on the bottom and do a full day instead. Debra always tells the customers to have a conversation with the captain on what their expectations are and let him do what he does best !! We appreciate you taking the time to write this review. We look forward to hearing from you again. Thank you, Capt. Chris

Captain Tyler took our family out 6 years ago during the spring, prime shark season and we caught a bunch, this time it was fall and he was still able to find sharks for us again. We had a great time, even caught some "growlers" 🤣. Debra was also super helpful getting us rescheduled when our original booking was canceled due to high winds. Highly recommend!!!!

Fantastic company from beginning to end!!!
Debra called me and booked my trip and it took less than 5 minutes, she sent the itinerary at the perfect time, she is so helpful and friendly.
We have booked this company 2 times already, first time with Capt.Tyler and the second time with Capt. Joe and both of them were fantastic so knowledgeable about were to get fish but also great personalities as well. The limit was caught on King fish and the Mahi catch was amazing. We will not go to any other company after being spoiled with greatness by this company ( and I am super hard to please).
Thank you Fired up Charters you have customers for life!!!

I also am very lucky to have such a loyal and outstanding list of loyal, repeat customers. I'm glad that you now joined that list🥰. We look forward to hearing from you again. Thank you, Capt. Chris

We were super excited to go on an all day fishing trip. The weather did not cooperate for the all day trip so we ended up doing a 4 hour shark trip. Debra was excellent with communication about the weather. We had to reschedule days a couple times but she really did an amazing job letting us know about the storm coming through and changing the days and trip for us. Captain Zach and Captain Tom tried there best to get us on some sharks with no luck. Caught a couple small fish but no keepers. I would definitely book with fired up charters again, just maybe change the time of the year we would pick next time.

Thank you April for all the ups and downs with Mother Nature. One thing we can't control and have full respect for. Debra I have to say is just so great with keeping in touch with everything. I try to see when she slips up to tease her but it hasn't happened yet 🤣 Capt. Zach is just such a great guy and Capt. Tim our newest addition is still in training but glad that he also made an impression on you. We look forward to hearing from you again. Have a very Happy Holiday season to you and your family. Thank you, Capt. Chris
